Citing the announcement by CDC Director Rochelle Walensky, people who are fully vaccinated can also meet unvaccinated people in another household in the home without wearing a mask or keeping a distance if those people are not at high risk for severe COVID-19 illness.

Fully vaccinated people who come into contact with someone with COVID-19 will also not need to be tested or isolated, unless they show symptoms or live in a crowded environment such as a nursing home or rehabilitation facility.

However, the CDC continues to recommend that fully immunized individuals wear face masks and maintain social distancing in public or in indoor gatherings that involve large numbers of people from multiple households. . The new guidance does not apply to meetings with people with underlying medical conditions that put them at greater risk of severe COVID-19 illness.

The health agency also continues to advise people not to attend mass gatherings and not to travel domestically or abroad.

The above recommendation was made by the CDC in the context that US states are preparing to reopen schools and businesses when the number of new COVID-19 cases has decreased continuously for the past several weeks. To date, about 59 million Americans have received one or two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, about 23% of the adult population. Currently, vaccination rates in this country are steadily increasing.
